FOWChallenge-Mermaid

~~~~~

mermaid

a mythical sea creature with the head and trunk
of a woman and the tail of a fish,
conventionally depicted as beautiful
and with long flowing golden hair.
****

Not a mermaid as I thought;

simply a girl in a wetsuit

in Vancouver Harbour,

Canada.

Samples of Australia’s pre-decimal currency. 

The larger coins on the right are officially

known as ‘florins” which is Two Shillings. 

Colloquially they were knowns as Two Bob.

Smaller coins on the left are One ‘shilling’ coins. 

Known as ‘a bob‘ or a ‘deena’ (not sure of spelling).

I don’t know why.

In total those four coins equal 6 shillings

One-Word-Sunday-Autumn

spring  / autumn

 

A bit late….forgot to post last week.

A spring in the air,  

Stanley Park,

Vancouver,

Canada

 

This time of year finding autumnal scenes

much easier Down Under.

 

 

Japanese Maple leaves

from last year.

Some of Vancouver’s

Giant Laughing Statues…

…in Stanley Park.

 

 

A spontaneous laugh at Sydney’s

Manly Beach

 

Father after receiving his wig for his

74th birthday about ten years ago. 

That year he had been treated for breast and

at least one other type of cancer…maybe two. 

He celebrated his 86th birthday in mid-October.

Comfortable

It appears that young Maggie did not care about comfort

the day she licked up discarded cooking wine.

MGW thought Maggie was ill…until

she smelled Maggie’s breath.  🙂

 

 

Growing 

About ten days after autumn rain

grass seeds begin to pop through

seeking warm sunshine.

 

Tangled

Perhaps the rope is not as tangled

as it could be…

..so I added some rectangles of

which there are plenty.


Crowded 

I was wishing some of the tourists had stayed away

the day we visited Rome’s

Trevi Fountain.

 

Exuberant

It seems a life time ago since I was able

to jump like this without any concern

for the damage it was doing to my knees.
